COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The lighter beer of our two offerings, this ale was designed to be an almost "non-ale". It is golden in colour, brilliantly clear, and clean across the palate. The mix of 4 malts still provides subtle character in the body, and the addition of malted wheat provides a slight, but characteristic citrusy finish. Hopped with noble Saaz and Golding, the bitter is barely perceptible, but mild hop flavours linger in the after-taste; the dry, clean finish provides a refreshing perk at the back of the palate. The full package mimics the classic milds of the British Isles, with a bit of Yukon spirit, just to make sure you remember what part of the world you're in!

stephen louis (165) - Victoria, British Columbia, - APR 11, 2005
This is a very malty ale...but well done. On the pour...the nose was 99% malt.Nice colour..light Amber and gold with a off white head. On taste...not near as malty and boring as the nose would indicate.Well balanced to the side of malt ,but smooth and mild.Just enough hops to finish the beer neutral dry. Light carbonation and loots of grain make this beer a malt lovers paridice..this would be a good beer for someone coming off of Molsen or Kokanee. It a nutshell ...this is English pale ale Canadian stlye..light and inoffensive. in flavour.

Bottle from the Barton LCBO. Pours a golden copper, fluffy white head, that dies down to a very thin film, some small island spots. Nose is cereal like. Tastes much the way it smells, grainy, a touch bitter. Not bad, just nothing special.
